These little pear turkeys are too cute, and this is a great project for the kids. You’ll need pears obviously, plus some craft paper and a few basic crafting supplies. You can use these to dress up the entryway table or create a centerpiece. You could also put name tags on them to personalize your place settings for Thanksgiving dinner. Oh, the possibilities!

Chances are that anyone not preparing food will be glued to the football games, or idly messaging on their phones, or doing any one of the things that people do as they bide their time on Thanksgiving Day. No doubt the house is spotless, and the table is dressed in holiday finery, but how much more engaging would the party be with the right Thanksgiving decorations in place?
Cover artificial pomegranates with copper leaf for festive decor that will never spoil. Just insert wooden skewers into artificial pomegranates. Coat each with adhesive size. Stand skewers upright in a piece of Styrofoam; let pomegranates dry until tacky (about 7 minutes). Following manufacturer's instructions, apply sheets of copper leaf until pomegranate is covered (approximately 2 sheets). Repeat with each pomegranate. Display on a tray, in a bowl, or on a cake stand.
